Top 10 Most Effective Editing Moments of All Time

CineFix put this collection together, based on a list published by IndieWire.
Skilled editing is as effective in the creation of a good film as a writer, director, or performer. Though often overlooked, editing brings shots together to make a whole greater than the sum of its parts. These ten movies are a fantastic illustration of just how important editing can be.

I am becoming addicted to intelligent analyses of movie techniques. These Cinefix short documentaries are passionate homages to great moments in movies, how they were created, why they work.

Editing is such a banal word. Here it is defined as the juxtaposition of images, non-verbal communication via the clash of imagery.

Why do we enjoy Top 10 lists? Is it because we are excited by the inherent competition? Because they enable us to compare and contrast? Or is it just the enjoyment of watching good examples lead to great ones? This one is fantastic.
